Went through long periods of starvation now notice strange sound when eating? - May 20th 2016, 05:12 PM

I notice this strange sound in my belly when I eat it's like a rumbling sound I can't figure out weather it was there before I went through my few months of starvation or not. If I'm honest it's like a rumbling sound with a bit of a digesting sound it sounds like the body is doing something to the food and I wonder what they could be. I looked up on google and it said it's the body digesting the food you have eaten but I have never noticed it before and was a little concerned thats all. This probably me being stupid but is that normal for your body to do that when you eat?

I'm not a doctor but I've heard this sound too, especially when I am overly full or eat "heavy" foods. I always thought it was digestion or gas.

Hi. I think its normal. It might happen more to people who starve because it happens to me too. And it only started happening after i got more into starving. Youre probably right about it being the body digesting food because after going awhile without food, the body is trying to process it when it hasnt had to do that for a long time. But there is nothing wrong with you.
